On to 1st grade!

Jon Kent is now a graduate of kindergarten.  My first baby is moving on to 1st grade.  How it is even possible that this child is old enough for this?  Isn't he supposed to still be that 5lbs, 8oz little baby I brought home from the hospital.. like.. YESTERDAY?  How did this happen so quickly?  Wow.  Just wow.

Last night Jon Kent and his class of about 100 got their certificates of completion.  Jon Kent also got an owl award for knowing all his lightening words and a music award.  I was especially proud of the music award because, as my husband likes me to put it, I am a true band nerd.

The whole night Jon Kent was beaming from ear to ear.  I was able to hold back my tears, which surprised me.  I was just so happy for him.  He was happy and that is all I could ask for.

Still though, I can't believe he is through with kindergarten.  Next he'll be going to middle school and then high school and before I know it I'll be sending him off to college.  Now.. on THAT day there WILL BE TEARS!

I love you bubba!  I am a proud momma because of you!!!
